Power Playlist

April 21, 2009


Unlike my counterpart, I must have music while I run. Otherwise, I find myself pondering my sanity or lack thereof. Each week I'll post a few songs to keep you motivated and moving throughout the week.

Need an extra boost? Try....

"You Can Hate Me Now" - Nas feat. P. Diddy

"Don't hate me, hate the money I see, clothes that I buy, Ice that I wear, clothes that I try, close your eyes"

Why I dig it? I can't help but picture myself finishing first place while the crowd chants my name as I get a phone call from Adidas with a shoe contract. A dreamworld away, but hey, whatever helps me get through the next mile of my run.

"Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" - Beyonce

"You decided to dip (dip), but now you want to trip (trip) Cause another brother noticed me I'm up on him (him), he up on me (me). Don't pay him any attention Cause I cried my tears (tears), for three good years (years)You can't be mad at me"

Why I dig it? I sing this really, really, really loud for all my ex'es to hear because "if they liked it, they should have put a ring on it"

"Shove It" - Santogold

"Taint my mind but not my soul Tell you I got fire I wont sell it for no payroll Let 'em hold me down I know if I know another way I can't look the other way I know another way I'll tell them so right to their face We think you're a joke Shove your hope where it don't shine"

Why I dig it? Authenticity is priceless and Santogold is just that. Perfect anthem for when someone says you can't accomplish your goals or dreams.
